On Saturday, November 2, 2013, a group of cyclists will be riding in the second annual Sikh Century Ride, a 100-mile route that begins in the historic city of Stockton, California and ends in Yuba City, where the largest Nagar Kirtan festivities in the United States will be taking place:

We’re at it again! To commemorate the 100+ year history of Sikhs in the US and celebrate Sikh Awareness Month in California, the Sikh Century Ride will take place on Saturday Nov. 2, 2013 starting from Stockton Gurdwara in the morning and ending at Yuba City Nagar Kirtan in the evening.

If you would like to join for all or even part of the 100+ mile ride, please read the rest of the details, ask us any questions ( and register here: There is a $20 ($30 after 10/24) registration fee which will help with logistics, support and lunch.

Designed to be completed in whole or in part, the ride consists of seven stages with rest stops in between. The event is open to all and I will be joining this ride in several of its stages.

Debuting last year to celebrate the centennial of the establishment of the Stockton Gurdwara, this is an exciting and novel way to celebrate the Sikh American community in California, particularly as November has once again been declared “California Sikh Awareness and Appreciation Month” by the state legislature.

You can find out more information, including the route and stages at the Sikh Century Ride 2 Facebook page, and can sign up to participate or volunteer here. Registration deadline is Sunday, October 27, at 7 PM PDT.

See you there!
